Hi, and Welcome to Paul James Wedding Photography. My wife Nicky and I are based in Southampton, Hampshire. My story starts from ten years ago. I picked up a camera and became a Hobbist. From wildlife to landscape, I loved it. From there, it went to events. I loved being around people. A friend of mine offered me the role of second wedding photographer. I learned from there that I wanted to open my own business.

Paul James Weddings was created.

Lovely Guy

Having Paul at our wedding as our photographer was great! He is a down to earth, funny guy who is also communicative and professional. Paul took our pictures in a discrete, unobtrusive way (which was exactly what we wanted). The weather wasn't great and was raining quite a lot but from the pictures Paul took you wouldn't be able to tell. We're extremely happy with all of the pictures and loved the wooden frame which included a wedding photo and the memory stick, we thought this was very sentimental. We would highly recommend Paul to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. Thanks again for capturing our once in a lifetime special day! Emma & Izmir x

Excellent personal service.

This is all you will ever need.
The stress is taken from you with a service so easy to recommend.
The whole process has no faults with a very professional service from day one. Emails and messages to every question, prompt replies and an all round great service.
I would have no problem to highly recommend this photographer to anyone.
The after service is as good as the first connection.

From consultation to the our first dance, everything was as we imagined it to be.

From the initial consultation to our first dance Paul surpassed our expectations on our wedding day. Paul was very professional in his work and took great care to ensure he captured our magic day without any problems. Paul and his wife came to our house to go through what we wanted on the day, which included the style of photos and video right through to speeches and the first dance. Paul was with us for 7 hours and he captured some beautiful photos and video of our family, guests and minor details like the table setups, the wedding cake and even my wife's makeup session! Overall we are very happy we hired him and his wife to make our day extra special with memories of the day to watch and view at our leisure. I want to point out that Paul and his wife are very particular in their work so you know you will get what you want on the most important day of your life.

A Last Minute Step in

We met Paul at an extremely short notice after the photographer could not make our wedding. He showed up not knowing who any of us was. Easy to work with and a pleasure to have at our wedding. He was friendly and adapted well to the highly stressful task. Would recommend.
